A Belgravia Apartment

This splendid double fronted ground floor apartment, situated in London’s finest residential square, was created using CVP’s architectural and design expertise.
 
The layered splendour and sheer opulence of decoration combines an exotic mix of Eastern and European, Renaissance and 19th Century influences.

A rich feast for the eye of colour and texture was created by combining a variety of styles: Venetian and Turkish glass is mixed with Renaissance inspired fabrics from France and Italy, which vie with intricate patterns of oriental rugs and lincrusta walls.

The Main Salon (top left and right)

The velvet swag curtains hang below pelmets of Renaissance patterned silk fabric, complete with a Baroque braiding.

Darker satin is used over a Fortuny inspired pale green silk, with specially commissioned tassel tie backs.

“It's important to design curtains for individual windows. These were two very narrow openings, quite far apart, but you can adapt the proportions of an entire room by making the best use of window dressing”.
